WWE Monday Night Raw 8/8/11…The Biggest Party Of The Summer

The road to Summerslam ends here for the people on Raw.  What will CM Punk have to say next?  Will John Cena care?  Tune in with me and find out….now.

We are in San Jose, California, and it’s time to play The Game.

HHH, the COO of the WWE comes to the ring.

Jim Ross, Jerry “The King” Lawler, and Michael Cole welcome us to the show.

In just 6 nights will be one of the most historic nights in WWE.  The entire landscape of this business changes.  The WWE Champion, John Cena will face The WWE Champion, CM Punk.

Change is the key word in WWE lately, in one month, we have had 0 WWE Champion, with Vince McMahon in charge, to HHH being in charge, to 2 WWE Champions.  There will be one undisputed WWE Champion.  So how can we determine who will be one WWE Champion?  You empower one person, who will be the answer.  Empower someone who is respected, and won’t be bullied around.  HHH has found that one man, one man who has cast a shadow over John Cena, over CM Punk, and even over WWE….that man is HHH.

HHH will be the special guest referee, he will call it down the middle, and when the dust settles, we will walk away with one undisputed champion.

But that is this Sunday.  Tonight, we will have the official contract signing between John Cena and CM Punk.

But before that happens, both men will wrestle, and John Cena’s match is now.

Here comes Cena.

Cena has a few words with HHH, and tonight, there will be an official contract signing, and when we come back, we’ll find out who Cena is facing.

Cena is facing Jack Swagger.

Cena wins with an Attitude Adjustment.  Swagger had most of the offense here, but at the end of the day, Cena pulled off the victory.

Tonight, The Miz will be taking on Rey Mysterio.

WWE Summerslam recall….Summerslam 1991, Bret “The Hitman” Hart Vs Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig, the night Bret “The Hitman” Hart first won the Intercontinental Title.

Scott Stanford is backstage, he has Alberto Del Rio.  Del Rio will face CM Punk.

Del Rio calls him “The voice of the gutless” when he saw Del Rio coming to turn in his briefcase at Money in the Bank, he ran.  Tonight, he won’t have a chance to run.

4 months ago, R-Truth turned on his tag team partner John Morrison.

Truth is backstage, with Josh Matthews.

Why would you take advantage of your friend?

Why?  Why?  Why?  Why if he is a Captain of the ship, does he run?  Why if there are 10 Hot Dogs in a pack, we have 8 buns?  Why do we have questions with no answers?  Why does he hate spiders?  Because they are hairy and ugly.  Nobody is friends with spiders.

Truth talked about how his Mom made Spider Soup, what?  The only person that ate it was “Little Jimmy”, and tonight, he will squash that spider.  The spider’s name is John Morrison.

Coming up next, we will see The Miz taking on Rey Mysterio.

The Miz attacks Rey before the match starts. 

Michael Cole interviews The Miz and asking why he did that.  Miz said that Rey Mysterio will be out for a while with a knee injury, so he thought he’d take him out.  Okay, maybe he didn’t say that, but he did to serve a purpose.  Miz asks if Michael knows who his opponent is for Summerslam?  He doesn’t either, while HHH is busy handling CM Punk Vs John Cena, he is forgetting about the most sought after WWE Champion in history.  The teen Choice Awards wanted him, he was on George Lopez last week, all he wants is respect.  So now he asks for a referee to come out, raise his hand and ward him the match by forfeit.

Well, the ref comes out alright, but he says there is still going to be a match, and it’s against Kofi Kingston.

The Miz beats Kofi with Skull Crushing Finale.  Jim Roos made it clear that both men do not have a match lined up for Summerslam.  Do you remember reading where WWE has some big plans for The Miz, despite losing the WWE Title?  Yeah, he is still waiting for that moment too.

Josh Matthews interviews CM Punk about his thoughts on HHH being the special guest ref.  Punk isn’t surprised by this, because HHH’s ego wouldn’t allow anyone else to get the spotlight, so as long as he stays out of his way, they won’t have a problem.  As for Alberto Del Rio, we are going to find out what would have happened if Del Rio had cashed in his briefcase for a title shot at Money in the Bank.

That match is on now.

Punk won the match with a GTS, this match lasted less than 5 minutes, their first encounter ever.  Del Rio needs more wins before they have him cash in his briefcase.

You can vote on WWE.com on who you think will leave Summerslam as the WWE Champion.

Still to come tonight, the official contract signing between John Cena and CM Punk.

Wrestlemania 27 on NBC this Saturday night.

Due to the Cleveland Browns first NFL Preseason game Saturday night, the Wrestlemania 27 show in the Cleveland market will not be shown until 2:30 AM.  Not sure if I am going to watch it then.

Diva’s action here now…Eve taking on Beth Phoenix.

Glam Slam…she’s done.

Beth wants a mic, and she informs Eve that she is sick of Diva’s like herself and Kelly Kelly making a mockery of the Diva’s division.  No more booty popping, no more splits, and no more stink faces.  She has her back, and Kelly attacks her from behind.

Still to come tonight, John Morrison Vs R-Truth.

The United States Champion, Dolph Ziggler is ready for a match.  He will face Alex Riley.

Vickie Guerrero is standing between Dolph and Alex, Alex has the mic and told Vickie she has bad breath, and Dolph wants her out of the ring.

The match is on now.

Vickie gets Dolph DQ by slapping Alex on the face, and Dolph is not happy about this at all.  Vickie leaves Dolph and says he would be nothing without her.  He is the United States champion….just saying.

Still to come tonight, the official contract signing between John Cena and CM Punk.

Video footage of CM Punk Vs John Cena at Money in the Bank is being shown now.

Summerslam rundown, so far we have 4 official matches.  6 days in, and we have 4 official matches.

John Morrison Vs R-Truth is on next.

Truth wins the match with Paydirt, and he worked on John Morrison’s neck.

John Laurentius is with HHH in the back, finalizing the contract proceedings, and the contract signing is next.

Next week, Rey Mysterio gets to wrestle whoever is the Undisputed WWE Champion on Raw.

Christian is on the Titantron, he said that both he and Randy Orton are wrestling Friday night, and he advises the WWE COO HHH to appear there, because Christian has an announcement to make about his match at Summerslam with Randy.

The WWE poll has 54% of John Cena leaving Summerslam as the Undisputed WWE Champion.

The official contract signing is taking place now with CM Punk and John Cena.

Punk wants to know why they have this contract signing when it’s clear where they are going with the title match at Summerslam.  The last time there was an official contract signing, there were furniture flying all over the place, he feels like an actor plugging his new movie on Conan.  HHH asked him how his movie is doing, and Punk tells him as well as HHH’s movie is doing, straight to DVD.  But he does have an actor to explain his feelings about John Cena.

It’s The Rock.

The Rock is on the video saying that Cena is a phony.

Punk said that the ironic thing is Cena is a phony, but so is The Rock.  Cena is enjoying this, he enjoys someone calling him out?  Cena said that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a bona fide Hall of Famer, he is main eventing Wrestlemania, he is currently working on G.I. Joe 2.  But what gets at Cena is The Rock has everything, yet he is so concerned with what Cena wears. 

Cena will never have “The Millions”, he won’t even have Punk’s legions of fans, the “Voiceless” as Punk puts it, but what he will have are his fans.  The ones that want to stand tall and fight with him, but Punk said that his problem with Cena stemmed back when Punk won his 1st title, the ECW Title.  The next day, Cena, who had barely spoken two words to Punk before then, patted him on the back and said good match there, I thought I was going to lose faith in you.  Who the hell do you think you are, saying you lost faith in Punk?  Cena tired at Wrestling because he failed at bodybuilding, but Punk was a Professional Wrestler since day one.  He paid his dues, while Cena looks down at people like him.  Punk said he will beat Cena at Summerlsma, and he won’t have the WWE Championship.  He may still have his fans peeing their pants everytime they see him, he may still have his match Rocky, but he won’t have the WWE Title.

Cena said fun speech, do you realize how much pressure is on you this Sunday?  he won one match at Money in the Bank, one match.  But what happens if he might just lose at Summerslam?  He’ll be a one hit wonder, like Milli Vanilli, Yahoo Serious, and Buster Douglas.

Punk said he’d rather be a one-hit wonder than a phony.

Cena is now ready to fight, so let’s move the furniture around.  Punk is game for that, but John Laurentius steps in Punk’s way and Punk kicks him in the head.  Than HHH gets in Punk’s way and Cena tries to deck both of them, which gets HHH and Hunter goes face to face with Cena now.

But they are standing side by said and Punk asks if this is how it’s going to be.

Someone is leaving Summerslam with the WWE Title, and the other person is leaving with nothing else.  The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

No question about it, the main event for Summerslam is setting up rather nicely.  The problem is the rest of the show, for the go-home show of Raw for Summerslam was just there.  I loved the dynamic Punk Vs Cena has.  The Institution Vs The Voice.  Who wins?  And now that HHH is the special guest referee, we can guarantee someone is getting screwed and align himself with HHH, I just hope it’s not Punk, because he has something there with the fans.  A connection that nobody, and I mean nobody has in WWE.  So if he turns back as a heel, we’ve seen it before.  But I also feel Cena won’t turn heel because they want you to believe that.  So, I can see Punk winning, and turning heel again.

As for everything else, the matches were fine tonight, but why isn’t R-Truth Vs John Morrison a Summerslam match?  How about The Miz, why doesn’t he have a match?  And if Rey Mysterio is hurt, than how can he wrestle next Monday for the title?  Confused yet?  Contact me by email at DJKevinGillman75@aol.com or contact me on the site.
